Bobs synchronized blinking has an uplifting effect on dog and owners. Bob has returned to looking happy .
Borderline hot today. 16 degrees. Scottish summer weather. It won't last. There's a deep depression in the Bay of Biscay that's due to bring rain and high winds. We enjoy the balmy conditions while we can.
Sophie does a full perambulation of the village - clockwise and then counter clockwise. I attach a short lead to her harness in case she decides to chase a cat but she seems happy to trot along beside me. How long this good behaviour will last is any ones guess. Later today a man will come to quote on covering the old elm staircase with sisal . Highly polished elm and titanium strengthened legs are a slippery and unwise combination.
All the parking spaces in town are taken. We have to go into the multi-storey. Bob finds the stairwell in the multi-storey car park to be a place of great olfactory interest. His human companion thinks it's more like a health hazard. The family fellow is hurried up and down. He makes it plain he would prefer to tarry.
A tee shirt that seems to sum up the sentiment of the day. In my experience it's impossible to have a 'hostile' conversation with an Aussie. This morning I learn otherwise.
